Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any sort of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance companies, there is no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehab center while receiving rehab services. Although this may appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of environment than lots of people in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
